Thursday before last, during the evening rush hour, Lewisville Police dispatcher Jose Ronquillo took a call from a driver following a suspected DWI vehicle. Ronquillo kept the caller on the phone for more than 10 minutes as he tried to locate an officer who could intercept. Eventually the call was transferred to the Flower Mound Dispatch Center. When Flower Mound Police stopped the vehicle, the driver had a 9mm handgun and told the arresting officers he was on his way to kill his girlfriend's ex-husband.
As someone who has called in and followed several suspected drunk drivers over the years, I always hate to think that maybe I'm causing someone some grief if I've guessed it wrong. But I'm glad to hear that this call turned out well, and a terrible crime was prevented. Great job, LPD, FMPD, and the caller!
